CSS   Into The Sun  Official Video    YouTube

Check out the stripped back SynthPop of CSS’s new single Into The Sun. Seems to be a pleasant return to something a bit electronic and a bit Poppy after all that Indie nonsense.

There’s all kinds of subterfuge going on in the video,. Seeds too”

Into The Sun is taken from CSS’ new album Planta, out now.

Lovefoxxx & Steve Aoki

OK, so I’m really not a fan of Steve Aoki, I find his music mostly pretty tedious. Derivative and simplistic I have no idea how he got famous, it seems generally from ‘knowing people’ rather than ‘being good at music or DJing’. However, I flippin’ love Lovefoxx and thankfully Mr Aoki hasn’t made something completely terrible in ‘Heartbreaker’, their collaboration.

It’s a surprisingly good, pretty funky, Electro Disco tune that’s actually catchy as hell which I’m loving more each time I listen to it. It comes with an ace video too! You’ve earned yourself a temporary reprieve Mr. Aoki, but we’re watching you.

‘Heartbreaker’ is taken from Steve Aoki’s album, ‘Wonderland’, out now.

CSS, tEPr & The Asteroids Galaxy Tour


French Disco wizard, and one third of Yelle, tEPr’s reMix of CSS current single ‘City Grrrl’ is a thing of pure awesomeness.

I have a massive soft spot for CSS, back in 2007 they were killing it, but the do have a habit of getting a bit Rocky for me, so this mix which combines tEPr’s Nu-Disco genius with Lovefoxxx’s sassy delivery and catchy song seems pretty perfect. tEPr provides such a cool beach party vibe for the track, with big, filtered, Dreamwave style synths and a big of French Touch bass. The track would have made a sweet instrumental, but the addition of a vocal that sounds like it was always supposed to be on a Disco tune pushes is into magepartyjam territory.

CSS have also just reMixes The Asteroids Galaxy Tour’s  ‘Heart Attack’, from their forthcoming ‘Out Of Frequency’ album to celebrate the announcing of their headlining US tour. It’s a cute Blip-House ElectroPop mashup.

CSS reMixed by Depressed Buttons


I am digging the hell out of this reMix.  CSS and Bobby Gillespie’s ‘Hit Me Like A Rock’ was an interesting comeback for the Brazilian quintet but this reMix from this Omaha trio Depressed Buttons blow the original out of the water.

The Mad Decent signed Depressed Buttons mash-up dancehall beats and crazy synth riffs. it’s noise, exciting and powerful, but that’s only to be expected from three guys who used to be in The Faint (a massive favourite ‘round these parts). Lovefoxxx’s vocals always sound amazing and intense over heavy synthesized music and this track is a prime example.

Kavinsky + Lovefoxxx + Breakbot = OMG!!!


I really don’t know how much I can say here, the original of Kavinsky’s ‘Nightcall’ featuring shared vocal duties with Lovefoxxx of CSS is pretty incredible, elevating Kavinsky far far above being an electro-House or French House artist, it’s a proper, retro-tinged, ElectroPop track. it’s pretty dark (save for Lovefoxxx’s counterpoint vocals), it’s mid paced, and actually really emotive. There’s no ‘banging’ in sight. It’s, dare I say it, beautiful!

So, let’s throw Breakbot into the mix shall we! Although (and this is just my personal preference) I prefer the original, I absolutely cannot fault Breakbot’s Disco opus, it’s got everything, literally everything, you’d look for in a Disco track!

-Edit- I’ve removed the .mp3, apparently that wasn’t the finished master, which essentially means the final track will be even better!

The ‘Nightcall’ EP, the continuing adventures of the Dead Cruiser, is released 15th March and includes a reMix from Dustin N’Guyen, who is rumoured to be Xavier DeRosna, we shall see!

Lovefoxxx & 80kidz; Ultra team-up!


Japan based Electro heroes 80kidz ‘ave only gone and teamed up with Indie-Electro goddess Lovefoxxx of CSS, ain’t they!

Sounds like a match made in heaven, right? Well the track is everything you’d hope it would be. It’s a huge, dirty juggernaut that manages to be noisy and catchy all at the same time. The combination of 80kidz chainsaw Synths and Lovefoxxx’s madness is sheer genius.
